“Finding a deep, meaningful connection with our community and converting fans to donors is at the heart of any marketing campaign for a non-profit organization. When Santa Maria Valley Humane Society embarked on re-branding, including our web site, I knew that I our success would hinge on our ability to be professional and compelling. Working with the team at de la Riva Brands, we could not be more pleased. They took the time to fully understand our goals and worked with our staff to carefully craft a brand that represents our organization and helps us tell our story. I would highly recommend Tony and his team to any other non-profit organization or small business.”
